MDS Monday #5

Hello Friends,

Time for another MDS Monday with Utah Divas International.  This week we were asked to create a project using 'GREEN' being that it is St Patrick's Day this coming Thursday.  I have never understood why we observe/celebrate St Patrick's Day.  (It's not like the Irish need an excuse to drink alcohol :)

The base of this card is Whisper White although it is obviously difficult to see this :)  I used Pear Pizzazz to layer on top of the white.  I used a cute frame using Always Artichoke and added a brad using the same color in each of the corners.  I added some Whisper White Grosgrain Ribbon with a knot.  Last week, the challenge was to use punches. I used a punch in this weeks challenge - the corner rounder.  I added a LUCKY sentiment from the 'Define your Life' alphabet set using Whisper White ink.

St. Patrick's Day is celebrated because of Saint Patrick. He went around Ireland and other countries teaching them about the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. He used a 3 leaf clover to demonstate to them. That is the real reason behind it, not the green beer, green beads around your neck, and the so called lucky 4 leaf clovers. That is all hyped up to sell stuff, like at Christmas and Halloween. Now you know!!

Love your card and love to follow your blog too!
